The Commission has today confirmed its intention to provide an additional €30 million of EU funding for CAP promotion programmes starting in 2015, on top of the €60 million that is foreseen annually in the CAP budget. As these schemes are co-funded, this change is likely to mean an additional 60 million EURO for promotion measures. Aimed at alleviating the impact of the Russian measures against certain EU agricultural products, this additional effort will start with the promotion programmes that need to be submitted by the end of September.

The resolution of outstanding issues under the Economic Partnership Agreements, among others, will no doubt facilitate regional trade in Africa, writes Eromosele Abiodun. In the years before the global financial crisis in 2008, global trade increased exponentially. While African countries benefited from this increase, their share in world trade has remained low. Africa’s export trade amounts to only about three per cent of world exports. This poor trade performance partly relates to trade protection outside Africa against African products, but it also stems from constraints that inhibit trade within Africa. With the expectation of a generally moderate recovery of the global economy and of world trade, it is even more important than before to foster African countries’ trade with economies both outside and inside Africa.

African ports and maritime managers will meet in Kenya in November to seek ways of addressing challenges facing the two industries, organizers said on Thursday.
